In that case the air-gas mixture is off or flows very slowly. Try to light it up with a match - if you can't then you will have to adjust the mixture from the burners by moving the sleeves. If you can light it up but the flame is very weak then the pressure regulator has failed and it must be replaced.
In either case i recommend that you call a pro, if you can't do a perfectly safe job don't touch it - you don't want a gas leak in your house.

    They are just that: a metal tube that slides over the pipe leading to the burner, partially obstructing a hole that provides the air to the gas.
    While adjusting it be very careful - no open flames nearby and keep the windows open.

My hotpoint gas hob ignighter keeps clicking


You have either a bad switch under the knob, or you recently had a power outage or something took out the spark module. You can test each switch for continuety when the switch is closed or 0 ohms on your resistance meter. if these are all reacting fine, then replace the spark module. Oh, and you might want to call a technician on this one. Make sure its unplugged and the gas line is stable. You have to remove all of the burners to get the top off. GL

Model CVGX2423W ignighter sparks at all four bunners if only trying to light one


Every time you try to light just one burner the ignighter will try to light them all. The reason why is that they are all wired to the same switch under the cook top. There is nothing to be worried about. That is the way the factory made the cook top.

GE profile gas cooktop - sparker firing with knobs turned off?


replace your spark module
have you spilled liquid on the cooktop recently?
if yes let it dry for a couple of days and see what happens.
sometimes when you spill liquid on the cooktop it grounds out the spark module and it will continue to spark until it drys.
let me know if you need more help

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner


There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.
